Topic: Consciousness and the Universe

posted 2/24/2017  00:46Send e-mail to userReply with quote
I have this tought going around in my head for awhile and want to know what other people think about this.
What i was thinking is if it is possible that the universe itself is conscious, with what we now know about the brain in a scientiffic view i find it impossible that the universe is not conscious.
If you simply go by the logic that the brain is just a very complex system of molecules interacting with each other the universe is very similar. And if consciousness is created by the brain and i think it is, wouldn't that mean the universe itself can create a consciousness too.

So thats my tought and i would love to hear other peoples toughts on this.

Thank you for writing this, i like posts here by thinking people like you.

I made my artificial consciousness system. Then i read about the David Bohm implicate order. The similarity was too striking.

But that's about the primum mobile of consciousness and universe, that these are the same means that consciousness can emerge in the universe, but primum mobile being the same by itself doesn't mean the presence of consciousness, as systems with very fixed and predetermined functionality can also be formed on the same primum mobile.

PS Please read elsewhere in this forum about primum mobile. Like Turing machine is a primum mobile, it is also likely an unrestricted primum mobile, but it is not a self-developing primum mobile.

I suggest you read up on Panpsychism-Your view was the standard worldview until the materialistic scientific view took hold a few hundred years ago. I myself am a Panpsychist and I think you will find some good videos on youtube.
